Each week on Monday's ESPN NFL Countdown show Michael Irvin talks about his top Playmakers for the week. So why not do the same in fantasy? Here we go.

Willie Parker, Steelers: Look, we've been talking about him all over the web site, but the fact is he was the top scorer in ESPN's standard scoring this week and if you guessed right and started him over some of the middling running back choices, good for you. Now, we recommend Parker over a lot of other RB options, including Domanick Davis. How much further can this Parker craze go? Enjoy this, but don't assume Parker is just a one-week fluke. He ran for 161 yards and a touchdown, and caught a pass for another 48, and he's one of the fastest guys in the league. If you own Duce Staley and need to play him, you're in trouble.
